Teaching Teenagers

vor 7 Monaten
A poem I wrote last year about my 10th grade FCE students :)
To get the most out of teen classes you must give them leeway, but finding that balance between encouragement and control is not an easy task, especially as so much depends on it :)

Teaching Teenagers.

I adore looking at The guilty smiles, Hung like fake jewels On their innocent faces.

Butter would not melt In such fair mouths. Angels in disguise Only tell innocent lies.
The restless minds Of impetuous imps Brimming with Life, And burdened with strife.
Are a challenge to reach But an absolute joy to teach. (© Gerry Aldridge 2016)

Questions
  1. How much L1 do you allow in the classroom?
  2. How do you bring a group of noisy, but nice students having their own discussion back to focus on the lesson again? Is it a constant battle?
